Above ground pools aren’t created equal and some are much better than others. And, in Wisconsin, with harsher winters and elements, the type of above ground pool you choose matters. Because above ground pools generally aren’t considered permanent structures, many of our clients add landscaping or decking around their above ground pools to create more pleasing aesthetics. This is something many above ground pool owners should and have considered prior to purchasing.
Penguin Pools installs two types of above ground pools
Standard Above Ground Pool
Penguin Pools installs the standard round or oval above ground pool. It’s the classic above ground pool you’ve seen on TV and in your neighborhoods for years. Standard above ground pools allow you to enter the backyard pool market quickly and cheaply. However, standard above ground pools have a tendency to be fragile. Standard above ground pools mostly require building a deck the pool to help it blend into your backyard. And, we caution our clients that decks often cost as much or more than the pool, so you want to make sure that your pool will last for years to come
Radiant Above Ground Pool
Penguin Pools installs radiant above ground swimming pools, and we recommend that any potential swimming pool owner considering an above ground pool consider this pool as they are built to be permanent.
Similar to our in-ground pools, they have walls that are bolted together to make a solid frame. If anything were to happen to a radiant pool wall, it would get removed and replaced. This prevents you from having to replace the entire structure like a standard above ground pool. Radiant pools are over 2″ think making them very strong and giving them a R-10 insulation value. Radiant pools are so strong that you can bury these and not lose your warranty.
